Frequently asked questions

How does Booking Tickets work?

Select the tickets you’d like to purchase, and click on the cart to confirm your booking and pay.

After you complete the purchase of your tickets we will email you a booking reference. You should bring this booking reference with you to the festival and exchange it for your festival wristband. For details see FAQ - How do I obtain my festival wristband? We recommend printing or downloading a copy as there may not be internet connectivity at the festival site.

Who needs a ticket?

You need a ticket for anyone aged over 5 (16 and under tickets are half price).

We offer concessions to anyone in the following categories: Student, Over 65, Low Income or Local Resident - simply select a concession ticket, and bring proof of your eligibility to the box office at the festival. See FAQ - Can I buy a concession ticket?

If you require a carer to assist you attending the festival please purchase yourself the ticket you require, and then when you come to the festival box office to collect your wristband, ask your carer if they can come with you. We’ll sort them out a matching wristband.

Can I use Mobile Data or WiFi on the Festival site?

There will be a lot of people on the festival site over the weekend, and it is unlikely that there will be enough mobile data signal available. You should you have downloaded any media you need before arriving at site.

The festival are not currently making any provision for WiFi on site.

Can I bring my Dog?

Dogs are welcome at the festival site, campground and any of the marquee or outdoor venues. We expect owners to clear up after their dog, and ensure that others remain safe and are not disturbed by you dog. We will ask owners of disruptive dogs to leave a venue whilst their dog calms down.

What camping is available?

We have a large (40 acre) site with water points, showers and toilets. Festival staff will direct you to an appropriate area for your needs when you arrive. All camping is free for the weekend - you do not need a festival ticket to join your friends camping, and can access showers, toilets, festival village and bar area.

Can I reserve a camping spot for my friends?

Ideally you will meet up away from our site and travel together. If this is not possible please let the staff directing you to a camping space what you would like and they will do their best to help. Remember that mobile signal may not be great on site, so contacting your friends may be difficult.

Are there any good walks from the campsite?

The festival site is on Wenlock Edge and just a few metres away from the Shropshire Way. There are extensive walks along the Edge past open mines, lime kilns, open woodland to Medieval manors. Heading through Much Wenlock the Shropshire Way also links to Ironbridge (approx 6 miles), The Wrekin and onwards. The Booking Office staff may have a few ideas!
